BURNS, BELL, BURLISON

I'm trying to locate information on the family of TJ Burns and Lizzie Burns. They appear in the 1900 Lewis County census. He is shown as being 27 and she is 19. There is a child who is 7. Thus it would appear TJ Burns may have been married previously. I'm trying to determine the maiden name of Lizzie Burns. I believe this indivdual to be my great aunt, Sarah Lizzie Bell, but have no documentation to prove that connection. Sarah Lizzie Bell was licensed to marry a Dossey Burlison in 1898. However, that marriage apparently did not take place, since she was (by family story) forbidden to marry Mr. Burlison by her father, William Joseph Bell, and brother, James Minor Bell. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

MOORE, RUNIONS (RUNYON), GRINDER

I am looking for info on my great-great grandfather, Frank MOORE. He was married to Nancy Jane RUNIONS (RUNYON) between 1860 and 1861. Nancy was the daughter of Thomas RUNIONS and Parthenia GRINDER. Nancy and Frank had 9 children: Ellen F., Sarah E., William B., Mary L., Susan A., Alexander Franklin, George Henry, Parthenia, and James Thomas. Frank is somewhat of a mystery. We are not sure if Frank is short for Franklin or it could be a middle name that he went by. He was born in 1834 and died in 1900. He and his family moved from TN to AL to Lamar County, Texas. I have been told that Frank served in the Civil War towards the end of the war and had been captured and was a POW. Anyone with any information, PLEASE email me.
